In this week’s episode of the Discover Strength Podcast, we are excited to kick off our Exercise Myths and Misconceptions Mini-Series with Dr. James Fisher and Discover Strength CEO, Luke Carlson by discussing heavy vs. light weights.

These two friends and colleagues were kind enough to sit down with me and discuss in their own words, some of the most pervasive myths still running rampant in our industry. While there are plenty to choose from, we decided to focus on the myths and misconceptions from our very first podcast ever with Dr. Fisher (HERE).

This five-part mini-series will cover some of the most widespread myths and misconceptions and hopefully set the record straight on some of these topics once and for all.

For our first part, we decided to focus on something near and dear to our hearts, heavy vs. light weights. There is a common myth and misconception that heavy weights, must be used to build strength, and that lighter weights with higher reps must be used to build tone and endurance. The research simply does not back this up.
In fact, Discover Strength recently published a paper, in conjunction with Dr. Fisher’s University, Solent University in South Hampton on this exact topic. Some of our listeners may remember and may have even participated in this study which looked at sets of 6 reps versus 15 reps (see study HERE).

We’re excited to share this first of five episodes with two of the most respected and cited leaders in the exercise science field, and to start destroying some of these major myths and misconceptions once and for all!
